YAM - Yet Another Mailer (#2) - YAM 2.5 Installation on MorphOS 2.1 (#88) - Message List

YAM 2.5 Installation on MorphOS 2.1
 unsolved

Hi!

I encountered the following problems on a fresh MorphOS 2.1 system:

1) There is no Installer in MorphOS - please mention it at least in the ReadMe, that you have to get it from somewhere.

2) MUI: is in MorphOS 2.1 just a fallback dummy on sys:Applications/MUI. MUI classes should go to sys:classes/mui So that the script will not fail on line 440 you have make the following: makedir sys:Applications/MUI/libs/mui

3) To be styleguide-conform the script should create a folder for YAM also.

Have a nice day! :)

    one other small thing i found out was, if you install on morphos 2.1 it creates a subfolder Catalogs/german - but when YAM 2.5 starts, it's searching for Catalogs/deutsch... don't know if this still happens with the nightly build...

    This is already fixed in the next installer script as well. English only directory names will be used for OS4 only, while OS3 and MOS will use localized directory names.

    I think everything is fixed then, except the missing Installer on MOS. But that is beyond our control.

    Thank you both for the response! So the second point is fixed already, the other 2 are not really bugs... more cosmetical - should i do a bugreport anyway? actually i tried to make a bug-report before, but with sputnik i had problems - it was not sending the report after typing (maybe also beacuse of a timeout on the serverside, i don't know...)

    2) MUI: is in MorphOS 2.1 just a fallback dummy on sys:Applications/MUI. MUI classes should go to sys:classes/mui

    This has been fixed in the SVN repository already for the next release. However, this doesn't help you for the current release unless you modify the script yourself.

    Replacing

    (foreach "MUI/" "#?.mc?"
       (copylib (prompt (cat "MUI - " @each-name))
                (source (cat "MUI/" @each-name))
                (dest "MUI:Libs/MUI/")
                (confirm)
                (help @copylib-help)
       )
    )

    (foreach "MUI/" "#?.mc?"
       (copylib (prompt (cat "MUI - " @each-name))
                (source (cat "MUI/" @each-name))
                (dest "SYS:Applications/MUI/Libs/MUI")
                (confirm)
                (help @copylib-help)
       )
    )
    

    shouldn't be too hard to do.

    Thanks for the comments. However, it would be nice if you could use our official bugtracking tool. Please point your webbrowser at http://bugs.yam.ch/ and submit a bugreport about these installer related items.
